Listen: Gulf, Ellis County, Ellis discussed on KRLD Saturday Morning News
"And also Ellis county the northern half of Ellis. But I've never seen it rained this hard and such a short period of time. We usually if it does it's a tropical system ROY comes off the Gulf. It's a hurricane. It's moving pretty quickly. And it slows down kind of like a Lisa did back in the early eighties. And I believe that twenty four hour record rainfall that was broken might have been a tropical system because it fell at the beginning of September September fourth and September. That was our wettest twenty four. Four hour period almost ten inches of rain. So I've asked a weather service haven't gotten reply yet.

So that's the that bears your railroad track. That's the area. These storms move from south pretty much from southwest northeast on average, but the upper level low lagging behind held the cool front up surface, low formed almost directly over us. And nothing was moving. We become so much more weather aware as a as north Texans. Given all of what it is that we've experienced in this region. So as we move out of the weekend and into the work week. Are we going to dry out? And are we gonna cool off? Well, that's that's the one hundred thousand dollar question.
